2012-2013 Philadelphia Meets

The teams competed and collected both Qualifying and Ranking Points as are presently awarded. At the end of the meet, teams were ranked based first on Qualifying Points won, and if there were ties, Ranking Points served as tie breakers. The points earned under this format determined the competition winner and standings at that meet.

In order to qualify for Pennsylvania State Championship selection, teams must compete in a minimum of 3 meets. Teams kept their scores (both Qualifying and Ranking Points) from each meet. The average of these two scores (total points earned in each category/number of meets attended) was weighted 50% toward team selection to Pennsylvania State Championships.

See Robot Meets for full details of this competition format.
